    Drew,
    Im 99.9 % sure, its your Cam Phasers. They stick either advanced or retarded, leaving one of your cylinder valves open at all times, no compression. Google cam phaser for Triton V10, I am sure your not the only one with this issue.

    I have a 04 f150 5.4.

    The only thing i have that you described is the slight ticking when hood is closed. I asked my mechanic who also has one and he said it was normal and every one he has worked on was like that. Man i hope he is right. Iv used mobil 1 synthetic since it came off the lot. No problems yet. knock on wood.
    Hope you get your truck fixed and dont have to put a new engin in it.

    Thanks guys. No big deal....like the skiff, I'll get it fixed. Just a truck and just money.

    You have to look at the tragedy in Tucson, to put it all in prospective.

    The take home message for me?

    I have already had one lousy Ford truck. Ford will not get another sale from me.

    I would push a ford everywhere I went before I would buy anything from Government Motors

    They're all jammed packed with recalls and gremlins. Dont matter what manufacturer or what model. These are a few of the Tritons, and I hope my issues help someone else out.

    Guess that narrows it down to Dodge, Toyota, and who else?
